      This must be getting especially tricky for the ESL people on here.

      • What do you mean "ESL" ? I know that as Electronic Sports League, but it doesn't make sense here.

          Vanity's is more of an example of an 'understatement'.

          (By the way, welcome to UKMix English lessons everyone!)
          Really ? I always thought an understatement was something like "Leave, I don't hate you"
          No that's paradox/oxymoron, or just being bloody confusing

          My brain hurts from looking at all the usage of the phrase "an euphemism" :(

            Jim means ESOL - English Speakers of Other Languages.

            • An oxymoron is associating two opposite words in order to make one of them stronger, like a "Beautiful Disaster".

              • Wikipedia people! ;)

                "ESL (English as a second language), ESOL (English for speakers of other languages), and EFL (English as a foreign language) all refer to the use or study of English by speakers with a different native language."

                • I should've googled it, but I'd never use Wikipedia (again).

                  Anyway, as an ESL person, I have to say it is getting confusing.

                      I'd just say it was being passive-aggressive

                                    A sarcasm can be made with the use of irony, oxymorons, understatements, etc.

                                      • I was proper gonna slate VanityEgo's education for a minute there but then I saw he's not British so I'll let him off

                                        I've only really known euphemisms in a smutty nature such as "I asked her back to mine for coffee but she said no as she had the decorators in".

                                          So we've established that sarcasm is the phrase that encompasses all of your posts on this page & the last?

                                                    I hit the " :x " by accident in place of a full stop :x :x :x
